SEAHORSES AND MORE...........
As I ended my last post, I mentioned that I was going to write and show pictures of the seahorse exhibit. While at the Tennessee Aquarium, I learned more about seahorses then at any time in my life. They weren't just any seahorses. There were the most beautiful species that I have ever seen. Can I just say that I am so intrigued by them? If you would like to learn more about them, please go here.
Here is a picture of the skeletal system of the seahorse.
Even though I have a great fascination for the different species, my favorite is the dragon seahorse.
Besides the seahorses, I found other exhibits that I enjoyed too. Here are some of my favorite pictures. Because of the lighting inside, they are not the best.
And the real reason that I wanted to go to the aquarium was to see the butterfly exhibition. That was such a great place to visit. Butterflies were all around us and if you were very lucky, one just might land on you. That didn't happen to us, but it did to many others. Here are a few pictures.
